I knew I'd be sitting on the floor a lot today doing costume stuff so I wanted something comfortable and easy to move in, and voila a black tank dress was dug out from the pile of clothing at the end of our bed, my next project once Halloween is over. I wore it with jeans for most of the day, until it got too hot. The dress is super easy to wear and comfortable. It's from Forever 21 and I am kicking myself for not buying it in other colors.
I forgot to set the alarm for later today and Ipacac decided he wanted to sleep on my head so I woke up at 8:30 on a Saturday. Weird. I got a lot done today so it turned out to be nice but now I'm exhausted before midnight on a Saturday night. Old.
I made us omelets for breakfast and then spent the rest of the day cleaning, decorating a little bit for Halloween and shopping for my costume components. After long trips to Target and AC Moore I think I am good to go. Besides costume stuff I also purchased a new winter coat at Target, a big girl coat that isn't for dogwalking! Ok, maybe a few times it will be. It's kelly green and has toggles and I love it. The Anna Sui dress that I've been coveting was 30% off but that meant it was still $41,still too much, especially when a winter coat is calling my name.
I made a dinner of seitan, sour cream mashed potatoes, corn with garlic lime butter and brussels sprouts. After filling my belly I got down to business: a horror movie and the beginning construction of my Halloween costume. I put a big dent into the project just by getting started and now I'm totally excited about it. I do predict many hours of bad horror movies (today's was The Haunting of Molly Hartley- very bad!) and costume construction in the next few days. I am documenting it all with pictures so I can blog in detail. Putting up a few decorations really got me into the Halloween spirit that I was greatly lacking. I am so tired now and tomorrow is a full day of paintball war for Kristin and Becky's birthdays and then a solid few hours of costume construction. I can't wait!
